I type this review now, two months after i got the album, because I was constantly listening to it for these past two months.
I have been a huge fan of this band ever since I heard if_then_else back in 2004. I have obtained all their albums and enjoy them all quite so very much..
But with every album, there was a playlist I create, of my favourite songs of the album.. But with home, the playlist IS the album..
I cannot begin to describe the beauty that is “Home”.. the voice of Anneke, soars higher and is purer and more heart felt than ever before… The music is deep, rich yet so accessible… There is not one song that is not beautiful within itself..
Whether its the upbeat Shortest Day, the melancholic Box, A Noise Severe, Alone, Waking Hour, the beautiful Forgotten, the uplifting Solace, and Your troubles are over or the heavenly In Between, Home and The Quiet One.. this record will truly take you on a journey you will never forget, a journey you will want to take over and over and over again..
Two words, Buy it.. you will not regret it for a second..
The one thing that is sad is that this band has not gained the recognition it deserves..
To the gathering, stay true to yourselves and thank you for heaven..
To the readers, stop reading and start listening..
